Maternity photos are an amazing way to document the beauty of pregnancy & what your body can do! Recently I’ve gotten several maternity inquiries asking specifically to see “darker, more contrasty, moodier” maternity photos. While my newborn work is generally pretty light-filled (thanks to the beautiful huge windows in my studio), I also love creating images that have a darker feel too! Because of how I set up my studio – I’m actually able to create both darker & lighter photos all within the same session – if you like both looks!
But this blog post is dedicated to some darker, contrasty, and moodier maternity photos – I do love this look!
When photographing a moody maternity session, I use a variety of techniques to create the desired effect. I tend to use darker lighting and shadows to create a more dramatic look. I also like to play with different perspectives and angles, so that I can capture the beauty of the pregnant form in an interesting way. Additionally, I will often use props or fabrics to add texture and interest to the photos.
I strive to make sure my clients have a great experience with their maternity photography session. I want you to feel empowered and beautiful during this special time in your lives. Together, I work with my clients to create photos they can enjoy for years & years to come!
